Wesley the cat

  1. Thought I'd do a quick shoot with one of my cats tonight to see what I could do with just the Einstein (with a 32"x40" softbox) and nothing else, since it would be a bit difficult to surround the guy with more speedlights or reflectors. I decided to bring the blacks down and make his white fur a bit more vibrant in post for that solitary look.

    he's got an unusual looking snout.... I like him! And crazy whiskers. As usual, your lighting makes the shot.

    Very nice. I don't have a softbox (aside from a 9 inch one...) OR stands, but I do have 2 speed lights and the same remote you have. So setting anything up is tricky.
